Leading aPaaS Provider to Share Best Practices for Implementing Bimodal IT with the Right People, Process and Platform
BOSTON – November 19, 2015 – Mendix, a leading provider of application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS), today announced it is a Silver Sponsor at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration (AADI) Summit. The conference is taking place December 1-3, 2015 in Las Vegas.
With a theme of “Empowering Innovation, Leading Transformation,” the Gartner AADI Summit will focus on how application strategies must evolve to seize new opportunities. Front and center on the agenda is bimodal IT, an approach that enables organizations to combine the rock-solid capabilities of conventional IT with the speed and agility required for digital innovation.
Located at booth #107, Mendix experts will be on hand to discuss best practices for implementing bimodal IT. Drawing from its experience guiding more than 500 customers along their digital journey, the company will share four key aspects to successful rollout of digital transformation to rapidly produce high productivity, differentiating applications:
- Portfolio – Collect ideas and categorize the application portfolio to identify initiatives requiring a differentiated agile approach to development, sourcing, DevOps, governance, etc.
- People – Identify the people, both from business and IT, who can collaboratively deliver digital applications taking an agile approach. Define sponsorship and organizational embedding.
- Process – Establish processes for iterative development and rapid deployment in a fail-fast, test and learn approach
- Platform – Leverage modern cloud platforms that eliminate the constraints associated with traditional development tools, enabling rapid delivery of digital applications
“Organizations see bimodal IT as a way to accelerate their digital journey without disrupting core applications, systems, and processes that run the business today,” said Kirby Wadsworth, chief marketing officer at Mendix. “Mendix offers an out-of-the-box bimodal approach, allowing customers to launch their digital innovation initiatives quickly, and then add structure and scale organically to deliver breakthrough results. We look forward to sharing the benefit of our experience and capabilities with Gartner AADI attendees.”
